Holiday cottages in North Yorkshire are ideal for fans of the great outdoors. North Yorkshire is home to both the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North York Moors National Park. United by the call of this glorious natural environment are walkers, ramblers, road cyclists, mountain bikers, steam rail enthusiasts and families seeking North Yorkshire holiday houses.
Also known as England’s sheep country, North Yorkshire is less about the industrial revolution that marks other Yorkshire regions and more about wool and the wealth it has brought to this area. Hence the crop of stately homes and impressive religious structures that smatter the landscape. From the Wensleydale Creamery at Hawes in the west, to the spa town of Harrogate in the south and the popular seaside towns of Whitby, Scarborough, Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes in the east, you’ll be torn where to stay in North Yorkshire and what to see.
